Call Number: GC 929.2 Ab88b par par tab This book contains the history and genealogy of the Abshire family of Virginia. Bibliographic Information: Binnie, Lester H. Abraham Abshire of Virginia and some of his Indiana Descendants. Privately Published. Indiana. 1982. par par tab par par tab par par tab ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS par par tab This publication is intended to provide historical information, as well as genealogical data, on the descendants of Abraham Abshire who settled in Indiana. For some families, the data is extended to the fourth or fifth generation, but many persons who are now living will not find their names listed here. If they know the names of their grandparents they should be able to establish their relationship to others. par par tab In a few instances, the names of descendants living in other states have been included or clues have been provided for those doing research on the family outside of Indiana. par par tab Many persons who supplied useful information have been recognized in the text. To them and others the author extends his thanks. Special thanks is due Barbara and Bill Abshear, 3803 Marcus Ave., New Port Beach, CA 92663, for their ABSHIRE ABSTRACTS published since March 1979. par par tab It is regreted that data for some of Abraham’s children could not be found by the author, and there are some admitted deficiencies in the data found for others. par par tab No attempt has been made to establish the relationship of the Abshires (various spellings) who settled in Spencer and Warrick Counties, Indiana, but it seems likely that they were descendants of Luke Abshire, the brother of Abraham. par par tab par tab Lester H. Binnie par par tab BACKGROUND Peter Ipsher obtained a patent for 200 acres of land from the New Grant, situated on Johns Creek, a Tributary of Craigs Creek, in what was then Augusta County, Virginia, on 29 May 1760. par par tab AUGUSTA COUNTY DEED BOOK 11, p. 326. In 1769 the Johns Creek area became part of the newly organized Botetourt County, and in 1851 it became a part of present Craig County. According to a recent highway map, Johns Creek enters Craig Creek in the vicinity of Craig Springs about 25 miles northwest ot Roanoke. par par tab It appears that Peter Ipsher died before the patent to his land was issued; as, Augusta County court records show that Eve Apinger or Apingher became Administratix of Peter Apinger’s estate on 17 February 1760. She signed with an X. The inventory of Peter Abshire’s effects was recorded in Augusta County on 18 August 1761. Following the names of the appraisors; Robert Montgomery, Robert Rowland and David Luney the following statement appears: “This inventory or appraisement of the estate of Peter Appinger, deceased, being returned into the court is ordered to be recorded.” The inventory lists two horses and five colts, thirteen cattle, farm and household equipment and no slaves. par par tab AUGUSTA COUNTY WILL BOOK 3, pp. 56-57. The 200 acres of land, described as lying on both sides of Johns Creek, was in the possession of Ludwick Ipshire, son of Peter, and was sold by him to Israel Christian for 50 pounds on 8 March 1763. par par tab AUGUSTA COUNTY DEED BOOK 11, p 326. In April 1764, Col. Andrew Lewis was authorized to employ 450 men for the defense of the Virginia Frontier. Among this group was a company of Militia under the command of William Christian, son of Israel Christian, This copmany was recruited from those living on the Roanoke and the James Rivers, Craig Creek and Catawaba, Of the 130 men listed in this company, the name of Christ Apshere appears as number 129. par par tab The family names Ipshire, Apinger and Apingher disappear from the records. They are replaced by Abshear, Abshere and Abshire. These are found attached to the names of Ludwick (Luke). Christian and Abraham, all believed to have been sons of Peter Ipsher. par par tab It is believed that Peter Ipsher was killed by the Indians. The most important conflicts during the French and Indian War occurred during the period 1754-1763, and Indian raids were experienced on the west side of the Blue Ridge including Augusta County. The ANNALS OF AUGUSTA COUNTY, VIRGINIA, 1726-1871, by James A. Waddell, 1912, refers to these raids and to Dr. Hale’s narrative which, it is claimed, may or may not substantiate an Indian raid on the upper James River in about 1761. In the ATLAS OF ELKHART COUNTY, INDIANA, 1874, by Higgins and Beldin, Co., Chicago, p. 30, there appears a statement by Hiram Abshire, grandson of Abraham Abshire. Hiram stated that his “great-grandfather was murdered by the Indians in Virginia.” par par tab By 1770 the Johns Creek area had become a part of the newly organized Botetourt County. The LIST OF TAXABLE AND EXEMPTED MEN, BOTETORT COUNTY, VIRGINIA, 1770-1777, does not contain any Abshire names. It is speculated that by that time they had moved south along the colonial Carolina Road, now essentially Federal Highway 220, to that part of Bedford County which became Franklin County in 1785-1786. However, Howard D. Abshire of Boones Mill, Virginia, in material supplied to the a author, indicates that the route followed by the Abshires from the present site of Roanoke was southeast to Buzzards Rock Ford, then south through Windy Gap and via what is now highway 116. Route 116 is now known as the Jubal Anderson Early Highway. par par tab THE BEDFORD COUNTY, VIRGINIA, LIST OF TAXABLE PROPERTY AND TITHES FOR 1782 shows the following: par par tab par tab “Abshear, Ludwick, age 21 or over, no slaves, three horses, par tab nine cattle, one tithe above the age of 16. par tab Abshear, Abraham, age 21 or over, no slaves, three horses, par tab five cattle, one tithe over age 16. par tab Abshear, Christian, age 21 or over, no slaves, three horses, par tab five cattle, one tithe over age 16.” par par tab Since only one tithe was indicated in each case, one might presume that there were no male children over age 16 in these households. However, of the pages examined by the author only one instance was noted in which more than one tithe was reported in any family! Ludwick, Abraham and Christian Abshire appear in the 1786 TAX LIST FOR 1786, FRANKLIN COUNTY, VIRGINIA. The county was formed from Bedford, Henry and Patrick Counties in 1785-1786. Christian Abshire does not appear in the Franklin County records after that date, and he is said to have removed to Burke County, Nortl Carolina. According to research done by Mrs. W.O. (Ruby) Absher North Wilksboro, N.C., Christian and Jacob Absher were living in the area when Burke County was organized in 1777. Some of her material appeared in the JOURNAL PATRIOT. North Wilksboro, 12 March 1970. par par tab Ludwick and Abraham Abshire continued to live in Franklin County and died there. Their graves have not been found. There are two old cemeteries; the first about a mile east of Boones Mill, the second about a mile north of the first. These were visited in 1981 by W.C. Jones of Roanoke, Virginia. He reported that there were very few stones having inscriptions and no proof that either Ludwick or Abraham were buried there. The oldest stone found with an inscription shows: par par tab “Giles W.B. Abshire, born 22 Jan. 1826, died 26 June 1911 Delila J. Denton, wife, born 8 Mar. 1835, died 29 Mar. 190 Married 28 Dec. 1850.” par par tab Ludwick Abshire, hereafter referred to as Luke, was probably born in 1742 or earlier provided he was of age when he sold land in Augusta County in 1763. He is said to have married Christina McGrady, probable daughter of Laughlin McGradah who appears in the 1782, Bedford Co. Tax List, above, McGrady is said to have moved to Wilks County, North Carolina. par par tab Luke Abshire died ca. 1822. The inventory of his estate was in court on 15 Jan. 1823, and included 11 slaves as well as othe personal property. The slaves alone were valued at $3.400. par par tab Abraham Abshire died on 28 July 1842 as judged by his pension records. The value of his personal property was only $58.50. Abraham named only two of his 15 or 16 children in his will, and for that reason it was necessary to identify the children of Luke in order to aviod confusing them with the children of Abraham. Lukes children have been identified through the use of Franklin County court records including the following: par par tab Peter Abshire and others vs. George Wright and others, 3 Feb. 1823. par par tab Smith vs. Abshire and others, 1 Jan. 1837. par par tab The will of William Abshire, Book 4, p. 389, in court on 4 Dec. 1837, in which he named some of his siblings. par par tab A death report filed by James L. Abshire and recorded in the Register of Deaths, Franklin County, Virginia. James reported that his father, Abraham a son of Luke, died on 17 Dec. 1867, age 87 years of a sore leg. This report can not be certified because the present officials believe the law, in use only a few years, was not reliable as it depended on voluntary reporting. This data was obtained by Gertrude C. Mann of Rocky Mount, Virginia. par par tab A biographical sketch of Abraham Abshire, 1800-1892, grandson of Luke, found in the WABASH COUNTY, INDIANA, HISTORY, 1884, by Helm, p. 420 par par tab From the above sources the children of Luke, order of birth is uncertain in some cases, were as follows: par par tab par tab 1.

M.B. 14 June 1801, Surity, Wm. Brown. She was living at his death on 28 July 1842. par par tab The first reference found pertaining to Abraham appears in VIRGINIA TAX PAYERS. 1782, in which he is listed with Christian and Lodewick Abshire in Bedford County, Virginia. He appears with Luke in the TAX LIST FOR FRANKLIN COUNTY, VA. in 1786. AN OLD VIRGINIA COURT, by Marshall Wingfield, shows that Abraham was appointed Ensign in Capt. Renfro’s Company of Militia, 1786; appointed Lieut. of Militia in 1787; appointed surveyor of a road in the place of Daniel Morgan, and that he filed the list of the members of his gang in June 1788, all in Franklin County. par par tab On 1 Oct. 1832, Abraham Abshire appeared in the Franklin County Court in relation to his application for a pension as a soldier of the Revolution, No. S-6459. The following is quoted from his application: par par tab “…he has no register of his age, but believes himself to 77 years old.” par par tab On the basis of this statement, it is calculated that he was born in 1755; however, THE CENSUS OF PENSIONERS, FRANKLIN COUNTY, dated 1 June 1840, shows Abraham Abshire, age 92, living in the home of George W. Abshire. By this record, he would have been born in about 1748. Continuing from his application: par par tab “…early in the Revolutionary War, about 1778, he went in a company raised in Bedford County, Virginia, under the command of Capt. Moses Greer…guarding the lead mines against the Indians and the Tories…and later a tour under the orders of Col. James Calloway…still later sundry expiditions or short terms of service under Capt. Moses Greer, after the Tories who had taken shelter in the mountains …also in the year 1780 or 1781, he marched from Bedford County, Virginia, to Petersburg in Virginia under said Greer…in a company thus called to Petersburg by his excellency, Thomas Jefferson, Governor of Virginia…at Petersburg he was attached to General Lawson’s Brigade.” par par tab On 31 August 1832, Moses Greer Sr. age 88 years, certified that Abraham Abshire served 12 to 18 months under his command and that of Capt. William Leftwich at the lead mines and under Col. Charles Lynch at Petersburg. par par tab par par tab par par tab Abraham’s pension was at $30.00 per year, under certificate No. 4308, issued 7 Jan. 1833. Records from his file show that his widow, unnamed, received the final payment for the period 4 March 1841 to 28 July 1842. The last date is considered his death date. par par tab Abraham made his will on 28 April 1832, in which he left a tract of land to his two sons, George W., and Thomas J. Abshire on condition that they care for his wife, Susanna. He naned his granddaughter, Betsy Kingery, “that I have raised from infancy…lastly I leave the balance of my heirs, 13 in number, one dollar apiece…” The sons, named above, were named as executors. The witnesses were Gabriel Swanson, Isaac Boon and Peter Kesler. The last two had died before the will was produced in court on 2 Jan. 1843. Thomas J. Abshire refused to take upon himself the responsibility and his brother, George, was given time to qualify. An inventory of Abraham’s personal property, 18 Feb. 1843, listed the following: par par tab par par tab par par tab 1 Loom $5.00 1 Table 2.00 1 Cupboard 1.00 1 Kittle 2.50 1 Cow 8.00 2 Yearlings 3.00 11 Sheep 11.00 1 Bay mare 15.00 1 Bond 11.00 Total $58.50 par par tab FRANKLIN COUNTY WILL BOOK, 5. p. 451 and 472 The Abshire families lived on the upper reaches of Maggodee Creek, north of Cahas Mountain and south of the present Roanoke County line. On a present day road map this is in the vicinity of Boones Mill. Settlement in Franklin County is said to have begun in the early 1700’s by Scotch-Irish and German emigrants who came through the Shenandoah Valley by way of the pioneer Carolina Road; also many had pushed westward from the English settlements in the tidewater of Virginia by way of the James River Valley. The Carloina Road followed, at least in part, what is now Federal Highway #220. At a point about a half mile south of the Roanoke County line, on Highway #220, a local road, #613, extends northwest along Maggodee Creek to a community called Naff. An early settlement map of Franklin County, prepared for the County Historical Society by Gertrude C. Mann, shows the family names of Wray, Vinson, Naff, Boon, Arthur, Noftsinger, Wright and Mills, all in some way associated with the Abshire name which also appears there. par par tab par par tab THE FAMILY OF ABRAHAM ABSHIRE par par tab Abraham had children by at least two wives; and only two, George W. and Thomas J. were named in his will. If one concludes that the granddaughter, Betsy Kingery, was the child of a deceased daughter, then three children are accounted for. These three added to “the balance of my lawful heirs, 13 in number” gives a total of 16 children. On the other hand Abraham, having raised Betsy from infancy, may have singled her out for special treatment, and her mother may have been counted among the 13. In this case, the total number of children would be 15. par par tab Fourteen persons have been identified as his children with some assurance through the use of.; marriage records, known family relationships, other court records and the elimination of known children and grandchildren of Luke Abshire who bore the same given name. Some of the fourteen listed below are presented with less assurance than others, and the circumstances related to these are explained. The year of birth and death for some of those listed has not been discovered. par par tab par tab 1. James ABSHIRE, Born 1 Aug. 1777. par tab 2. Jinny (Abshire) HUSTON, KINGERY, birth date unknown. par tab 3. Elizabeth (Abshire) MILLS, born ca. 1782. par tab 4. Catherine (Abshire) KINGERY, McEVETT, born between 1775 and 1784. par tab 5. Nancy (Abshire) FRAME, born 19 Dec. 1786. par tab 6. Polly (Abshire) JAMES, born ca. 1788, Her identity is based on the elimination of Poly, par tab daughter of Luke, who married George Wright, and the elimination of Polly who par tab married Simon Justice, M.B. 2 Jan. 1809, on which Peter Abshire provided surity and par tab is judged to have been her father. par tab 7. Susannah (Abshire) WRIGHT, born 11 Feb. 1789. par tab 8. Isaac ABSHIRE, born ca. 1792. par tab 9. Margaret J. (Abshire) McELHANEY, born 6 Aug. 1800. A question is raised about par tab her parentage as is explained in the discussion of her family to follow. par tab 10. Jubal ABSHIRE, born 26 Jan. 1804. par tab 11. Miriem (Abshire) McELHANEY, born 14 Feb. 1807. par tab 12. Jemima (Abshire) WRIGHT, born ca. 1810. She is recorded as a daughter of par tab Susannah Abshire on her marriage bond. par tab 13. George W. ABSHIRE, born between 1810 and 1815. par tab 14. Thomas J. ABSHIRE, born 16 Dec. 1814. par par tab The early census data, before 1850, seems to reflect the presence of three additional persons in the household of Abraham Abshire, any one of whom may have been his child. par par tab A female, born between 1776 and 1796, appears in the 1810 census only. par par tab A male, born between 1794 and 1804, appears in the 1810 census only. It is noted that Nelson Abshire, whose parents are unknown, was born ca. 1794 and may have been this unknown male. However, the inventory of his estate, 14 May 1859, shows that he was a slave holder, and the children of Abraham seem not to have been owners of slaves. par par tab A female, born between 1800 and 1810, appears in the 1810 census only. She could, possibly, have been Sally, a daughter of this Abraham; however, is seems more likely that her father was the son of Luke. Her marriage bond shows Abraham Abshire as surity. Abraham, the son of Luke would have been about 42 years of age at the time of her marriage in 1832 to William Turner. par par tab The children 10 to 14 inclusive were no doubt children of Abraham and his second wife, Susannah Vinson. In this connection, it is of interest that Charles Vinson owned land adjacent to Abraham Abshire on Maggodee Creek on 21 Feb. 1782. par par tab FRANKLIN COUNTY DEED BOOK 7, p. 124. par par tab In the following pages most of the descendants of Abraham have been assigned one or more numbers which identify their generation and their position in relation to their siblings.

Abshire Rt 1, Box 470 Boone Mill, Va. par par tab The Lodowick or Luke Absher (Abshire) family was the first white settlers in this region which in those days was called Bedford County, Virginia. Named after the Duke of Bedford this area where the early Abshire’s settled is located on the rolling meadows south of Windy Gap Mountain. From the native forest they built small log cabins, which usually were one story, although some were two stories high. The window, which let in some sunlight, was made of greased animal skins. The door usually faced south and the chimney to the north. The door facing and the sills were usually marked by notching the shadows of the sun. This was their timepiece. All cooking was done on the open hearth fireplace. These pioneer homes were usually located two or three hundred feet from a fresh water spring. par par tab This area is located approximately five miles north of Boones Mill, Virginia, on State Route 684. Today this area is known as Shannon Forest Subdivision. It included both sides of Route 116, which is shown on early maps and charts as the north fork of Gills Creek. This area was to become Franklin County, Virginia, on November 8, 1786. Peter Abshire owned the portion of land which is now owned by Pete Perdue. These early settlers migrated westward up the James River to places that are known today as Buchanan and Eagle Rock; from there to a location called Big Lick, which was on the Sepony River which is known today as the City of Roanoke and Roanoke River. They traveled to a ford in Southeast Roanoke to a place called Buzzard Rock Ford where they crossed the Sepony or Roanoke River, and traveled to a gap or pass in the mountain called Windy Gap southward on to Franklin County. This place is the present highway 116 and is known today as the Jubal Anderson Early Highway. par par tab In the Virginia State Archives of 1773 it is recorded where Lodowick or Luke Ashur (Abshire) obtained a land grant from King George III of England when Dunmore was the governor of Williamsburg. This boundary had its beginning on the north fork of Gills Creek including the lands on both sides of Maggodee Creek to Cahase Mountain west of Boones Mill. Some of the early Indian names of this area were the Illinois, Iroquois, Delaware, Cherokee, Occanneechi, Totera, Mingo and Sapony. Two of their leaders were Chief Cornstalk and Chief Cahase. The early trails were established because of the terrain, by buffalo trails, migration and Indian war parties raiding the early settlers in the East and South. IN the early years, portions of State Route 684 were known as the Old Liberty Floyd Trail or Turnpike. Floyd has kept their burial spots secret from the Indians because they did not want the Indians to know how many died from disease, accident and exposure. This is thought to be the reason why many of our early ancestor’s burial location is unknown. It was rumored that Lodowick was killed by Indians. par tab Thomas Abshire, a descendant of Lodowick, granted a parcel of land on Maggodee Creek to Peter and Jacob Boone. These early settlers migrated from Bucks County, Pennsylvania. They, being skilled woodworkers or millwrights, carved out of the native timber the machinery to establish Boone Mill’s first grist mill. Wild cherry and other suitable wood was used for this purpose. This mill was located on Maggodee Creek where Ruff’s Antique Shop is today on U.S. Route 220. par tab George Wright, Sr., was the first postmaster of Boones Mill. He rode horseback carrying the mail east and west of the village. The first post office was located approximately one mile down Maggodee Creek from todays post office. The small log building was built by George Wright, Sr., at an area known in those days as the Devil’s Steps. This was across the creek from this early post office. The home of William B. Poff, Jr., is located today approximately where this building was. George Wright, Sr., is buried on a hill a short distance from this location. Portions of this information were obtained some time ago from George Wright, who is now 90 years old, and in a nursing home. He is the son of Charles Wright, who was the son of Otey Wright. His mother was Fannie Meadow. She was the daughter of Joseph Meadow and Fannie Abshire Meadow, who was the sister of my great grandfather, Giles WIlliam Burwell Abshire (a Civil War veteran). Today Shannon Forest Subdivision is located on the old Meadows farm. par tab The oldest house in Boones Mill is the old Jabez Abshire house, which is centrally located in the small village. It is a log body structure with the rafters mortised and pinned and is now covered with huge poplar siding. It is said to have been built by Peter and Jacob Boone. Extra living space has been added to this large (by standards of that day) two story log house. It is located where four hollows come together where early Floyd Liberty and Carolina Trails crossed. It also served in early days as a place where slaves were sold at auction and later as a stage coach stop. This stage line traveled the old Carolina Trail, which included large portions of U.S. Route 220. Today it is the home of Bessie Hodge Abshire, who is in her 80s, and who is the widow of Henry Thomas Abshire.par tab Peter Boone later migrated westward. It was common practice in the early days for our early ancestors to go on what was known as long hunting parties. They traveled in small groups over many miles. This was done in order not to arouse hostility of the native Indians. This usually took place from late ate fall to early spring. Jacob Boone later built another log house north of his mill at a rock on the east bank of Maggodee Creek. It is said he could not see around the bluff from his first house to the mill. This house has been remodelled and is the present home of John Hatcher Ferguson, Sr. Jacob Boone lost his leg in an accident at his mill. He died sometime later and is believed to be buried at a community graveyard, which was referred to as the old Hardy Graveyard when I was a boy. This graveyard is located on the east side of the ridge behind Continental Homes in Boones Mill, Va. Many of our early ancestors were buried there and I have hunted rabbit in this area many times in my youth. Most all graves were unmarked and at one time this graveyard covered several acres.par tab Boones Mill today is a lazy little town with much history. To describe it best, it is a small town in Virginia where many of our early settlers of the midwest, west coast, Louisiana, Florida, and every state in the union started their migration.par tab … from “The Abshire Family of Virginia and West Virginia” by James and Jean Abshire.par tab Luke was born in 1730-1731 based on order book 2 – page 71 Franklin County VA.

It was probably in 1851 that Enoch Wright, along with sons Claiborne and Enos, also Jacob the 2 or 3-year old son of Enos, and perhaps others, departed from Indiana and started west toward California. par par tab March 1, 1971 par tab Old Ship Passenger Lists on record in California State Library tell us a bit more about our Wrights in the west. par par tab par tab The steamer COLUMBIA is listed as having arrived at San Francisco on December 9, 1852 from Astoria, Oregon Territory. They had “rough weather the entire passage.” They carried more than 100 passengers, the survivors of two shipwrecks, considerable cargo, and “$75,000 in treasure.” par par tab The passenger lists included: Enoch Wright Enos Wright C. C. Wright C. Wright par par tab Surely the C. C. Wright and the C. Wright were Claiborne Wright and Clemens Wright, sons of Enoch. Thus we may conclude that Enoch Wright must have had three of his sons with him at that time. par par tab The ship list does not include the name of the child, Jacob Wright, son of Enos and grandson of Enoch — Jacob then a child of about 4 years of age; however old ship lists usually do not include names of children. . . . . . By July of 1854 the Wrights were doubtless in Visalia, California, for it was at Visalia, in Tulare County, that Claiborne Wright and Enos Wright registered a cattle brand on July 22, 1854. par par tab In 1857 the name of Enoch Wright appeared on a Fresno County Tax List. par par tab The following is taken from the records of the California State Lands Division at Sacramento: par par tab Nov. 18, 1859 Enoch Wright applied for land in Fresno County (now Kings County) – 320 acres – E 1/2 of Sec. 23 – T 18 So, R 20 E. par par tab On Jan 9, 1860 he made initial payment. On Dec. 27, 1870 he made payment in full. In 1878 there was recorded a deed from the heirs of Enoch Wright. Clayborne and Enos Wright owned two sections, 13 and 14, just north of the above property owned by their father; they bought it in 1858. par par tab Thus we can be certain that Enoch Wright was still living on Dec. 27, 1870 and that he had then reached the age of 85. He had died by 1878. No death record has been found, nor is there record of estate settlement. par par tab His son Enos A. Wright died in 1874 and left a large estate, which was administered by C. Wright. Jacob Wright, son of Enos, was the only heir. par par tab Jacob Wright, son of Enos and grandson of Enoch, married and had sons, so it is possible that there are Wright descendants in California; efforts have been made to contact them, but without results. . . . . .” par par tab The 1880 Census for Tulare County listed Jacob Wright, born in 1849 at Ohio, with wife Susan and two sons, Charles F., born in 1873 at California and Edmund A., born in 1874 at California. par par tab The 1870 and 1880 Censuses for Indiana list a Clayborn Wright, born in Virginia at about the right time, and I think this was the son, but cannot yet prove that. par par tab If you find anything further, especially the 1878 deed from the heirs of Enoch Wright or any deed by Clayborne selling his land, I would be delighted. And please bill me for any copying or other costs you incur. par par tab par par tab par par tab par par tab par par tab Highlights Isaac Newton WRIGHT was born Oct 13, 1823 in Knox county Ohio. His father was William WRIGHT, born in England. He married Elizabeth NEWTON, also a native of England. She died in Omaha Neb. They had eleven children. One son, George, came to CA in 1850 and died in Tuolumne. Another son, James came to coast with his brother, Isaac N., in 1851 and died in San Diego. par par tab Deciding to come to California in search of fortune, he sailed from New York on the Georgia in November 1851 for Aspinwall, from there going by Gorgona, then by small steamer to the head of navigation, completing the journey by by foot to the Isthmus. Then he took passage on the steamer Northerner at Panama, lading in San Francisco in December 1851. par par tab ON Jan 14 1851 in Mount Vernon OH he married Charlotte A. PHILLIPS. They had four children: Victoria (Mrs. A. D. NEFF), George W., Alice L. and Hattie M. (Mrs. W. J. HIGDON. par par tab Mrs. WRIGHT was born Nov 20 1830, near Mount Vernon Knox County, daughter of Charles and Addie (FOSTER) PHILLIPS. par par tab From an account by Mrs. Lester C. TOPHAM published as ‘Early Days in Tulare, CA. The First Family’ published in July 1971 in the Tulare County Historical Society Newsletter: “Isaac’s father was William WRIGHT and his mother was Elizabeth NEWTON. Young Isaac he helped erect the neighbor’s two-story house – the neighbors were Richard and Sarah PHILLIPS. When it was finished, he stood on his head on the chimney. When he was 20 or 21 he married their daughter, Salina PHILLIPS. They had two little girls, Georgina and Tillie. Salina died in childbirth when Tillie was born, and Tillie only lived four years. Grandmother Sarah PHILLIPS took little Georgina into her home and reared her. Georgina married and had four children. The youngest, Arthur N. DAVIS, became a dentist. He went to New York, and having studied German ended up becoming dentist to the Kaiser and the wife of the Kaiser. par par tab When Georgina was six, Isaac married for the second time to Charlotte Augusta PHILLIPS, a foster daughter of Richard and Sarah. Charlotte’s real parents were from England, Charles and Addie (FOSTER) PHILLIPS. They had come from England in 1828. The family was very poor. Charlotte was born in Mount Vernon Knox County OH on Nov 29 1830. They were so poor that Charlotte was taken to live with Richard and Sarah. Charles was related to Richard. Charotte’s mother, Addie, was born Nov 25, 1798 in Hastings, England. In 1843 Addie moved to Michigan and Charlotte never saw her mother again.” I am sending you this four-page article. I hope you enjoy the stories. The author is the daughter of the youngest daughter of Isaac and Charolotte. par par tab William Whitfied WRIGHT was born in Wisconson Jan 26, 1856, son of W. W. WRIGHT who was born in CT, but moved in early days to Wisconsin. Then moved to Grant County, IL. He married Cynthia OLIVER, native of IL. When Mr. WRIGHT died, she married George H. CASTLE of Stockton. She died at the age of 74 in Tulare. By her first marriage she had: Lizzie (Mrs. Delos WILSON – deceased) and W. W. WRIGHT. par par tab In San Francisco, Mr. WRIGHT married Kate GILMER, native daughter of CA. Her father was Rufus GILMER and there was a bio in the same county history on him which I also copied for you. Rufus GILMER was a ntive of Pope County, IL, born in Goldonda Oct 11, 1824, son of Campbell GILMER. Campbell was a native of Adair County, KY.

Every year in the Spring the family gathers together to continue the upkeep of this precious and priceless reminder of our past.par par tab There are two Unusual Headstones in the Cemetery.

He lived on the family plantation until he married, 25 February 1818. Miss Frances Abshire, daughter of Edward and Dinah (Short) Abshire. He was listed int 1820 census of Franklin County, Virginia, as head of a household, consisting of one white male 25-44 years old, one while male under 10 years, and one white female between 16 and 25 years of age. From this it is known that his first child was born between 1818 and 1820, in Virginia.

His parents, Daniel and Frances (Abshire) Wray, moved to Indiana. Milbird spent his youth upon a farm and received a common-school education. par tab In about 1855 when he was 26 or 27 years old he moved to Iowa. In 1855 he visited Dodge County, Minn., and bought an interest in a claim which he had made in the Concord township. Returning to Iowa, he married Mahettable Ann Richardson, July 15, 1857 at Guttenburg, Clayton County, Iowa; and very soon started for Dodge County, traveling in a wagon pulled by oxen, where he arrived in Sept. 1857. He settled on a claim which he had pre-empted in May 1856, on section 14, and Dodge County was ever since his home. par tab He was a Republican in his politics, and was a supervisor of Concord for several terms. He was sid to be “a pretty rough old boy” until the evangelist came around and he “got religion” and changed completely. par tab Milbird and his wife were baptised about Nov. 23, 1863, while they still met a the Valley (Eagle Valley) schoolhouse. Winter and summer baptisms took place in the river. Many times the weather was not cold enough to necessitate chopping a hole in the ice. par tab He was one of the early members to organize and build the Church of Christ at Concord. The meeting and planning of the building took place on Jan. 28, 1878. The members were few in number, but worked harmoniously, resulutely, and devoutly, always asking God’s blessing to go with them. The building committee was headed by Milbird Wray and the building was dedicated in Jan. 1879, the cost amounting to approximately $3,000. par tab Milbird served as Elder for 50 years. Sometimes the church was without regular preaching services, but was taught by the elders. The congregation owed it permanency to this teaching. Milbird Wray, and another man, Austin Tilden, were especially faithful from a very early period. None of the member of this church had more earnestly and faithfully worked for its’ welfare than Milbird, not had any contributed more liberally to its financial support. par tab Eight children were born to Milbird, on dying in infancy. His children were Carey M., Marion Clayton, Florence A., Frank E., Riley B., Alice L., and Hattie E. par tab Milbird and Mahettalbe celebrated the Golden (50th) Wedding Anniversay on July 15, 1907 at the C.C.

He must have a very loving father and grandfather as used to let the children hand on his beard. par tab He died March 3, 1910, at 81 years old. The pastor chose as his funeral scripture, II Corinthians 4:6-8 and Timothy 4:6-8.

Mrs. Wray in later years made her home with her son Riley, until two or three years ago when she went to live with daughter, Mrs. Chase, at Springfield, Ore. par tab To Mr. and Mrs. Wray were born eight children; Carey M., of Silverton, Oregon; Marion C., Minneapolis, Minn.; Florence A. Chase, Springfield, Ore.; Frank E., Portland, Ore.; Riley B., West Concord, Minn.; Alice L. Shoemaker, Salem, Ore., and Hatti E. Andrews, who died May 23, 1919. par tab There were twenty-seven grandchildren and thirty-eight great grandchildren. par tab Mr. and Mrs. Wray came to the Concord community nearly seventy-five years age, raised a family, improved a farm and could not but have suffered many hardships. Both Mr. And Mrs. Wray, he for nearly fifty years, and she for almost seventy years, were active member of the Concord Christian church. For almost half a century Mr. Wray was an elder in this congregation. par tab Services for the deceased were held in the Concord Christian church, Wednesday afternoon, March 26th, 1930. The services were conducted by Dr. Bentley Ray, for twenty-five years a friend of the family and pastor of the Concord church. Burial was in the family lot in the Concord cemetery. par tab Thuse the human ties that bind the Concord church and the Concord community to the past are nearly all broken; but two or three remain, the oldest of these remaining being Mrs. Frank Chase of Zion City, Ill., who is in her eighty-ninth year. We are sorry to lose these sturdy pioneers who made living a christian life and supporting the church an important part of life’s work. We are sorry to lose them, and sorry also because it sometimes seems that with them we have alos lost too much of a wonderful spirit. – Contributed. par tab tab tab tab {ifs20 Children:} par pard fi-1728li1728tx432tx720tx1320tx1728 fs20 tab tab 178.tab itab {bfs20 Carey Milton Richardson WRAY}{pardplain vf0fs20 {xe {WRAY, Carey Milton Richardson}}} b. 5 May 1858. par pard fi-1728li1728tx432tx720tx1320tx1728 fs20 tab tab 179.tab iitab {bfs20 Marion Clayton Richardson WRAY}{pardplain vf0fs20 {xe {WRAY, Marion Clayton Richardson}}} b. 18 Jun 1860. par pard fi-1728li1728tx432tx720tx1320tx1728 fs20 tab tab tab iiitab {bfs20 Baby Richardson (or Charles) WRAY}{pardplain vf0fs20 {xe {WRAY, Baby Richardson (or Charles)}}} b. 1862, d. 1862. par pard fi-1728li1728tx432tx720tx1320tx1728 fs20 tab tab tab ivtab {bfs20 Florence Annetta Richardson WRAY}{pardplain vf0fs20 {xe {WRAY, Florence Annetta Richardson}}} b. 13 Oct 1863, Mn, m. 22 Nov 1883, {bfs20 Jay J.
